Thyme is probably your best bet for Savory. Herbes de Provence is a mixture of thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, tarragon and chervil- possibly others, it's not a recipe written in stone-a substitute would be difficult, but if you don't have all of these you can probably get by; marjoram substitutes well for oregano, and parsley for chervil in a pinch.

Agree with Smaug.
Depending on the rest of the recipe (if it is seasoned with other aromatics and/or herbs) you might be ok just leaving it out.
Or increasing the other seasonings.

Spice wise the recipe has worchestershire sauce, sage, onion powder, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper and then the savory. So go with thyme you think? It’s a meatloaf recipe.

Ryan -
The recipe will work with and without the thyme.
If you have it around and like it, add.
If not, the meat loaf will still be very good.
Enjoy.

Thyme would work OK, or just leave it out, a meatloaf won't miss the one spice that much. For a spice blend, Careme's epices composees is a good one to have on hand. Sorry that I can't type the diacritical marks at the moment.
